Title
(EN) A SPLINT
(FR) ATTELLE
Abstract
(EN)
A splint (17) includes first and second collars (18, 19) pivotally supported on a body member (20) and adjustable so as to adjust the internal dimensions of the splint (17). A plurality of spaced resilient pads (21-27) are provided on the internal surfaces of the splint (17) so as to exert pressure on a limb (11) held in the splint (17) while allowing vascular flow. The splint (17) is provided with a support (36) for supporting the extremity of a limb, such as a hand (14) or foot. The support (36) allows some movement of the limb extremity to reduce swelling by promoting vascular flow.
(FR)
Une attelle (17) comprend des premier et second colliers (18, 19) portés pivotants sur un membre (20) du corps et pouvant se régler de façon à ajuster les dimensions internes de l'attelle (17). Une pluralité de coussinets (21-27) élastiques, espacés, sont ménagés sur les surfaces internes de l'attelle (17) de façon à ce qu'une pression soit exercée sur un membre (11) maintenu dans l'attelle (17) tout en permettant la circulation vasculaire. L'attelle (17) est pourvue d'un support (36) portant l'extrémité d'un membre tel qu'une main (14) ou un pied. Le support (36) permet certains mouvements de l'extrémité du membre afin de limiter le gonflement et de faciliter la circulation vasculaire.
